Student Right to Know

Student Right to Know (SRTK) is a federally mandated public disclosure of a college’s completion and transfer rate. The purpose is to provide potential students a manner with which to compare the effectiveness of different colleges using statistics. All colleges nationwide are required to disclose these rates. 

SRTK is a study that uses a group of students who are enrolled full-time as first-time freshmen who are degree-seeking. Their outcomes are measured over a period of three years. Completion rate identifies the number of students in a cohort who earn a degree, certificate or preparatory program. Transfer rate refers to the number of cohort non-completers who enrolled in another institution.

In compliance with the Student Right to Know and Campus Security Act of 1990, the George Washington University School of Nursing makes available its completion and transfer rates to all current and prospective students. Information regarding retention and graduation rates is available from GW's Office of Institutional Research & Planning and is available in the Factbook.
